Quick question.

The powers that be are considering CA Unicenter for future software deployments. Couple quick questions that I couldn't find easy answers to:

- Do apps deployed through unicenter have to be repackaged into a particular format (like MSI for Group Policy)?

- Can you run setup.exe installs without repackaging?

- What kind of tools can be used for repackaging?


Thanks in advance.

here you go....

- Do apps deployed through unicenter have to be repackaged into a particular format (like MSI for Group Policy)?
no. CA unicenter is basically a redirected install. You don't have to repackage applications to msi format. It's a different question when you have to deal with applications that do not install silently.

- Can you run setup.exe installs without repackaging?
Yes, but some setup.exe is kicking off an msi app.

- What kind of tools can be used for repackaging?
Install Shield, Wise...
